Does anyone outside of the guitar playing community even know who the Yardbirds were?
If Clapton hadn't quit, you wouldn't have had Jimmy doing his business.....
My buddy is a music nutjob...started collecting 45’s after seeing The Beatles at Empire Stadium, on August 21, 1964. He has well over 4000 45’s alone, never mind the vintage vinyl...he definitely knows who the Yardbirds are
What is this hate you talk about, why would you want to label me that?.
Sorry man, that wasn’t you personally, just quoting my initial generalization...”haters”, is a cliche I like to satirize...just wished you hadn’t smashed a perfectly good guitar
Seems like The Yardbirds did just fine without him, and Clapton did fine without The Yardbirds.
I suppose it's conceivable that if Clapton stayed with the band, Page would've stayed in the studio, and never formed Led Zeppelin. One life affects so many others...
Its a term I don't quite understand tbh.. Not to worry though kiddo, we haven't broken the world.
The Yardbirds had a bunch of hits... after Clapton left. And don't forget Antonioni's movie, 'Blow-Up'. with Beck & Page...
That's funny, I was going to post that scene. Such a bizarre setting, but of course it is only a movie. I've seen more people dancing at an art opening. You'd think the audience was watching a funeral service.
Love Beck destroying his guitar because his Vox isn't working (what else is new!)
No, No,. PLEASE let us forget "Blow Up" .
Next topic. " How great was Barberella" .
The were part of the Nucleus of the bands that got me committed to the Invasion Music, which I linked up with the Beach Boys, the Rascals, the Byrds and the Buffalo Springfield.
I was the boy who bought the Kinks and Yardbirds singles first, and if I had more money, THEN I bought other people's records.
Just kids in school. Heck, I wasn't even a guitarist yet, when I first fell for them. Vocals, keyboards, drums, even winds, was what I thought I had to offer. And there were a lot of kids who were either watching what I was doing and aping it, or they were on the same wavelength as me. Sometimes the stuff was on the radio but often it wasn't.
Out of nowhere, the other day, when I was walking and I began singing this. I hadn't heard a recording of it in years, but I did listen to the link for a few moments before posting:
Yardbirds were a big deal among at least some American kids in some towns.
I ask because that band always comes up in guitar player discussions, due to Page, Clapton, Beck... but I can't name one of their songs. I can name a bunch by the Beatles, Stones, etc.
They were my personal soundtrack, them and the Kinks, for a good long while until the Springfield formed, then they had to share a bit more.
"Mister, this song is just for you".
Tell this Clapton just because he quit the group to not give up and keep
I liked those Box-office Frogs records. I think I still have the first on vinyl and the second on tape. Haven’t followed the more recent iterations under the Yardbirds banner.
